Indolent Books is pleased to announce the forthcoming publication of These Woman You Gave Me, a chap-length collection of poems by Antoinette Brim. Speaking in the voices of Lilith and Eve in dialogue with Adam, with God, and with each other, these poems are also in dialogue with the Torah, the Talmud, the Prophets, and The Alphabet of Ben Sira, as well as a range of social, historical, and cultural intertexts.
Antoinette Brim is the author of the poetry collections Icarus in Love (Main Street Rag, 2013) and Psalm of the Sunflower (Willow Books, 2009). She is a Cave Canem Foundation fellow, a recipient of the Walker Foundation Scholarship to the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, and a Pushcart Prize nominee. Her work has appeared in many journals and anthologies. A printmaker, Brim recently exhibited both poetry and monoprints in Jazz: An exhibition of Poetry, Prints and Photography at the Sumner McKnight Crosby Jr. Gallery in New Haven.
